Rapper Yung Gravy appears to have agreed to take a TikToker on a date after she invited the star to be her plus-one at a wedding, and thousands of viewers tagged the performer in the comments.

On June 16, a TikToker who goes by @_lickmelucy posted a video in which she said long-time viewers of her account would know she had a “mild crush” on the rapper Yung Gravy, and that she thinks he’s “the most adorable thing to walk this planet.”

She went on to say she would be attending a wedding later in July as one of the only single people there, and decided to shoot her shot and invite the rapper as her date.

“I’ve never done anything like this before but here we go,” the TikToker said, before she acknowledged the rapper was “a very busy man” and would understand if she was shot down, but formally invited him anyway.

In the video she referenced Yung Gravy, who is 27, was known for dating older women, and said she was 14 years his senior. Back in 2022, the rapper publicly dated Sheri Easterling, the mom of mega-influencer Addison Rae, after he stitched several TikToks posted by Easterling. In August of that year, he took the then 42-year-old Easterling on a date to the 2022 VMAs, where they kissed on the red carpet.

In the caption alongside the video posted by @_lickmelucy, she tagged the TikTok account belonging to the rapper, wrote she “would cry if he even saw this” and asked her followers to help her out, which they did with gusto.

The video blew up with over 6.2 million views and over 20,000 comments, many of which tagged the rapper and insisted he take the TikToker up on the offer.

Weeks later, on July 8, Yung Gravy stitched the video, which featured a clip of the TikToker mentioning the age gap between them, before it cut to the rapper’s response. “Yes. The answer is yes,” he said. He also included the hashtag #iwillcometothatwedding in the caption of the video, which received 5.1 million views and 4,000 comments who were thrilled about the pairing.

But no one was more excited than the TikToker herself, who duetted her own reaction the same day, which showed her with wide eyes and appearing to scream, and was viewed a further 4.3 million times.

It remains to be seen if the date will go ahead, and if the pair will make an appearance at the wedding itself, which is apparently scheduled for July 22. On July 13 the TikToker posted a further update that appeared to show an Instagram message sent from the rapper to the TikToker, where he asked for details on the location of the event.

TikToker @_lickmelucy did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment.

Yung Gravy, whose real name is Matthew Raymond Hauri) is best known for his track “Mr. Clean,” which he released on SoundCloud in 2016, launching him to stardom. He has also built a following of 7.2 million on TikTok. Representatives did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
